Club Race Entry is now open here.
Ards Cycling Club organises a full programme of club races for its members from April through to September. Time trials, where riders race individually against the clock, are a great introduction into the world of bike racing. When you get fitter, and more comfortable riding in a group, then you might want to try our club road races as well.
Most races take place on Tuesday evenings – the full 2023 calendar is listed below. Links to the courses, and the results, are on the calendar. Various trophies are awarded annually for competition in club races. Click here for more details of these. We’ll try to keep an up-to-date list of leaders in the results pages against each race. We also award medals for riders reaching certain standard times in time trials. For a list of the standard times for each age group, click here.
This year we’re running an inter-club league with North Down Cycling Club. More details will follow, but for now events in this league are included below (marked ICL).
